For 40 years, the Ladies Guild has dedicated their time to performing works of charity for our neighbors in need.

About the Ladies Guild

The Ladies Guild is a non-denominational service organization whose mission is to assist in the work of Father Joe’s Villages. It is an all-volunteer group of 250 women who raise funds dedicated solely to benefit the children at Father Joe’s Villages.

Serve meals. Donate your skills. Help at events. Train others to succeed.

Annually, Ladies Guild members volunteer 14,000 hours of their time to help those struggling with homelessness.

When action meets compassion, lives change.

There’s nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer.


Father Joe’s Villages’ Ladies Guild has a wide range of volunteer opportunities for those who would like to help.
